THINGS TO DO AT THE BOATHOUSE
Most people don\'t want to leave the house as it is such a relaxing and beautiful space to be in, and has so much to enjoy. However for longer stays you can take a walk along the waterfront to two beautiful beaches. Catch the ferry from the public wharf to Dangar Island where you can grab a coffee, go to the island club or walk on sealed tracks around the island. Or go back to Brooklyn to the restaurants and coffee shops. Brooklyn also is the starting point for a number of bush walks.
The water taxi can be called to the Boat House to take you to Cottage Point Inn, Berowra Waters restaurant or to Peats Bite restaurant.
If you have brought your own boat the expansive waterways of the Hawkesbury, Cowan and Pittwater offer hours of boating pleasure.View Aborigional rock carvings visit beaches, catch a fish. After a day on the water come home to what has been described by guests as 'the most beautiful house in the most beautiful location that I will ever stay'.
Imagine having seafood platters delivered to your door, or a special meal catered for you to celebrate your special occasion; - Better still, catch your own. All this is possible at the Boat House.

It was a wondeful experience.
We had the best time.
Hard to decide what the best part of the house was, the stunning view and sunsets every night, or the beautiful interior with little wood carvings, statues and little touches everywhere. Very quiet and isolated, just a great house for a nice weekend away.
Excellent Property for larger Groups!
Totally blown away!
We stayed at the Boat House for a weekend. We were a large group of 12 (6 couples). All rooms had there own spa bath and private en-suites.
The place is massive, there was more than enough room for people to find their own space to relax. The location of the house is also fantastic, a short boat ride away to get to the property.
Loretta, the owner, was incredibly friendly and very helpful, promptly answering all of our questions in the lead up.
The Boat House, very comfortably takes a large group of people, with a huge kitchen and lots of entertainment areas, including an indoor swimming pool which was ideal for us, as it was raining all weekend. Despite the rain and mist we had so much space to enjoy ourselves and have a most memorable time. The deck and outdoor BBQ are is great place to spend the evenings.
Our guests were equally impressed, and many told us they were contemplating a return visit themselves
Thanks Helen for your comments, so pleased to hear you had such a good weekend. With 220mm of rain in the rain gauge from the weekend, your experience really does show the Boat House to be an all weather destination.! Look forward to seeing you back again.
We stayed over new year from 30/12/2016 till 2/01/2017 ,it was very very hot in the house , the house is not airconditioned, we could not sleep at all because of hit and mosquito, the house needs some work to be done ,and improve in cleaning
We are disappointed that the weather was unseasonably hot for Sydney. Mosquitos can be an issue on balmy nights anywhere especially on a waterfront. We supply evaporative air coolers in every bedroom for normal summer temperatures. In terms of air conditioning at the Boathouse, we find it impractical to do so. Because of its' unique waterfront location and views, guests naturally throw open all the bi fold doors overlooking the water. A/C does not work under these conditions but the cross flow ventilation does except perhaps during the unseasonably hot conditions as most of NSW experienced recently. As we advised by text message to you during your stay, it is unwise to have bedroom windows open at night and is effective to close the windows and run the cooler supplied for each room; - This would have greatly helped reduce mosquitoes. The Boathouse enjoys almost 50% repeat visitors however as with all properties appreciation is subjective. Overall a disappointing result for all as we had guests who had stayed only a few weeks earlier wanting to re book for New Years. The Boat House features in Catriona Rowntrees '100 Favourite Destinations ", and has featured on Getaway twice and Sydney Weekender once. Geoff Janz filmed a segment of Sydney Fresh not long after we purchased the property and described it as '3 levels of heaven'. Since that time we have carried out many improvements and will continue to do so as this 1500m2 unique waterfront home continues to provide memorable occasions for many people.
Very spacious although quite tired house. Great for a big group of people to catch up and enjoy the beautiful views. A true 1980's mansion!
We had a fabulous time. Plenty of room for everyone!!
